WHO WE ARE

The Yampa Valley Community Foundation is the primary source for philanthropic resources and education for donors and nonprofit organizations in Northwest Colorado. We promote thoughtful, individualized charitable giving and create endowments that have meaningful impact in the Yampa Valley.

Integrity

In all that we do, the Yampa Valley Community Foundation operates with the highest integrity. We are the gold standard in client services and a trusted resource to the community. Our work is impeccable, impactful and transparent to those we serve.

Connecter

We connect people who care with causes that matter. By leveraging our resources, expertise, and our relationships with donors and fund holders we work to achieve shared prosperity and equity in the Yampa Valley.

Community

Healthy communities rely on quality nonprofit organizations, and quality nonprofits rely on sustainable funding. We are proud to support our local nonprofit ecosystem through our annual Community Grant Cycle, which recognizes and rewards nonprofit programs that are creating meaningful change in our communities.

Open Door

Every day we meet with partners, new and longstanding to pass on our passion to build a better Yampa Valley. If you have a passion, we can help you find the best way to pass it on.
